4 Beaches That Will Turn You Into A Beach Bum

Clearwater Beach isn't the only nice beach in Florida.

4 Beaches That Will Turn You Into A Beach Bum

We all know Florida is known for it's gators, oranges, palm trees, and crazy people on bath salts LOL ! But, we can't forget get about our beautiful beaches. When I was a teenager the only beach my friends and I went to was Clearwater Beach, while it is nice it's a bit too poppin' for my taste. So here's a list of some low-key but equally beautiful and fun beaches here in Florida!

1. Indian Rocks Beach

Just a brief drive from Tampa or St. Petersburg, Indian Rocks Beach located in the cutest little beach town offers nearly three miles of beautiful and accessible beaches along the glittering Gulf of Mexico. What I really enjoyed about this beach is the fact that they had recycling bins located right next to the trash cans. Each recycle can had a cute little saying, "In the can, not the sand!" Another great perk is that if you come on the right day you can enjoy some pretty big waves, so don't forget your body board! OH and make sure you stop my Keegan's Seafood Grille for some bomb grouper and yummy salted caramel cheesecake for desert.

2. Maderia Beach

Also known as Mad Beach is one of my fave beaches to visit when I want to catch a beautiful sunset and just relax with not many people around. My boyfriend and I tend to go to this beach more often than not for the warm waters and sand bar that's not too far out. You can find some beautiful shells here too! Check out Rick's Reef when you leave for another amazing seafood place that is super yummy and casual , so wearing your bathing suit and wet shorts will be just fine !

3. Turtle Beach

Located in Siesta Key, Turtle Beach is known for the large number of sea turtles that nest on the shore. This beach is truly unique where the sand is a bit grittier than most beaches but none the less the water is so blue it almost feels like you're not in Florida but some place overseas ! Keep an eye out for some turtles migrating to the water !

4. Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is a residential beachfront community and beach located at the southern tip of Treasure Island, Florida in Pinellas County. A smaller beach but filled with so many beautiful shells and a cute little boardwalk! Keep your eye out for some painted rocks that you can either keep or replace with your own! The name suits this beach where the sunsets are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen!

Catch ya at the beach :D

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
